in 2000. After spending a semester as a visiting assistant
professor at the Illinois Institute for Technology, he joined
the faculty of the Department of Computer Science at Texas Tech
University in Fall 2001.

Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, Louisiana. Since
2011, he is teaching for the St. Martin Parish School District
in Louisiana.
Sarah McAllister (2005). Sarah wrote a dissertation on Error
Estimates for Stabilized Approximation Methods for Semigroups.
After being a Post-Doc at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center,
Yorktown Heights, New York, she is now visiting assistant
professor and, as of July 2009, tenure-track
assistant professor (Academic Area Coordinator) at SUNY Empire
State College, the Center for Distance Learning.

Transform Inversion and Time-Discretization Methods for
Evolution Equations." Since August 2008, Koray holds a tenure
track assistant professor position at Roger Williams University
in Rhode Island.
